Third-party performance analyst firm Cloud Spectator confirms that Liquid Web has the fastest VPS hosting when comparing LAMP stack performance against Amazon (AWS), Rackspace, and DigitalOcean.
LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, and the LAMP stack is the integral foundation for most websites on the Internet. Website performance is largely impacted by the hardware components that make up the system that the website is running on. Therefore, a faster virtual machine (VM) performance will lead to a better website, application, or eCommerce site experience for users. This applies to all CMS platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, or other commonly used online store software or application types.
The data was collected from entry-level VMs for Liquid Web, Amazon, Rackspace, and DigitalOcean for a period of 48 hours across multiple iterations of performance tests.
The median results are included in the report.
- Faster processor performance and high disk IOPS
- Highest number of requests per second
- 200% more transactions
- Best PHP performance
